Top 5 Spoof Horror Movies Perfect for Halloween 2016
Not all horror movies have to be scary. Spoof horror movies are entertaining and easy to watch. When it comes to Halloween, why not opt for the spoofs—the parodies that make fun of some of the most popular movies out there?
But there are so many, so where do you start? Well, for Halloween 2016, why not start with this list of top 5 spoof horror movies?
Let’s start with really the movie that started the spoof genre off properly. Scary Movie was made in 2000—yes, it is really 16 years old now!—and poked fun at Scream, which in itself was a bit of a parody of some of the older scarier options.
The first two of the franchise are the best. From there they get a little ridiculous and I haven’t even bothered watching the last one. But the first two are perfect for a Halloween comedy night.
Dracula: Dead and Loving It
Okay, so technically yes this is older than Scary Movie but it didn’t kick off the parody genre as much as the first movie franchise on the list. To be honest, this isn’t one of my most favorite comedy horror movies, but I know plenty of other people who love it. For me, Leslie Nelson is just a little over the top (but I think that about all his comedy movies).
Dracula – Dead and Loving It
Saturday the 14th
I only found out about this movie recently, and it is one worth watching. While it sounds like a spoof of Friday the 13th, it’s a spoof of a mixture of movies—and not all horror. Get ready for Jaws and Dracula to be thrown in there.

Shaun of the Dead
How can you not love this movie? It has to be one of my favorite spoof horror movies. The scene in the bar while Don’t Stop Me Now is playing is genius.

Wait, so if one of my favorite spoof horror movies is already on the list, what’s number five? Well, it’s not quite a movie.
The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Series
You can actually get all the half hour Halloween episodes on one DVD now. This series of comedy takes a look at virtually every horror movie out there and turns it into a comedy.
